In Neglect(1913)

Robert Frost

They leave us so to the way we took,
MeterThey leave us so to the way we took,
As two in whom they were proved mistaken,
MeterAs two in whom they were proved mistaken,
That we sit sometimes in the wayside nook,
MeterThat we sit sometimes in the wayside nook,
With mis chievous, vagrant, seraphic look,
MeterWith mischievous, vagrant, seraphic look,
And try if we cannot feel forsaken.
MeterAnd try if we cannot feel forsaken.
